Australian Criminals

Australian Criminals

Those pictures are Sydney Police's archive and were taken in the 20's. I think that every one of thoses portait are beautiful. I wish I knew what these people have done to be arrested, it would be even more interesting !

9 eyes

9 eyes

9 eyes gather very strange pictures found on Google Street View by Jon Rafman.

Luxogram

Luxogram

Tomasz Pluta, aka Luxogram, is from Poland and works with an old Kiev 88. I'm glad no one told him about the rule of thirds. Squared centred pictures are so much better !

Ashes and Snow

Ashes and Snow

Gregory Colbert's most famous work is probably Ashes and Snow. He travelled in India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Dominica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tonga, Namibia, and Antarctica to film and photograph interactions between human beings and animals. I must say the result is pure beauty.

Eye Poetry

Eye Poetry

Irene Suchocki is from Montreal. She went to Italy last year and her picture from the trip are just amazing.

Ailine Liefeld

Ailine Liefeld

Ailine Liefeld is fascinated by people and their expressions and can spend hours just studying them on public places. I think it show in her photos.

Alexandre Parrot

Alexandre Parrot

Remember Le Sucre Glace ? Alexandre Parrot sure deserved a more complete presentation. Each of his photos is full of poetry, dream, esthetic's, and sometimes a bit of strangeness ! All in all, I just love his work !

Magdalena Wasiczek

Magdalena Wasiczek

Macrophotography is usually not my favorite. But Magdalena Wasiczek prouved me wrong ! This photographer from Poland makes her garden looks just like a fairy tale.

In between

In between

With In Between, Gustavo Perillo uses windows of trains as frames : people captured are between two words. It's amazing how Gustavo created some poetry from the most common scene of life.

Urban Zoom

Urban Zoom

Jakob Wagner takes photos of citys (New York, Londres, Dusseldorf, Amsterdam...) in a quite unique way. I find those shots very powerful (and colorful) and I like the idea of a living city.

Shooting strangers in Orchard Road

Shooting strangers in Orchard Road

Danny Santos II is a weekend photographer who likes to shoot strangers in the streets of Singapore. He's been shooting street for about 2 years now. I wish I had the nerve to stop people in the street and ask for a picture like he does. But even if I succeeded, would I manage to capture regards with so much intensity ? I don't think so !

Bloggers

Bloggers

Gabriela Herman blogs and reads blogs. She believes that modern technology do not isolate people but rather bring them closer. I invite you to read more about it here, and meanwhile have a look at the serie !

Chris McCaw

Chris McCaw

I had the chance to discover the work of Chris McCaw thanks to a very passionate person : the instant I saw those pictures displayed on a white wall, I fell in love. The emotion is not quite the same with 500 pixels wide images, but it's still there. And the most amazing is the camera used by Mccaw (see the last picture) : it's huge !

De Vetpan Studios

De Vetpan Studios

Siebe Warmoeskerken is a 22 year old woodworker, and just like me, he's a bokeh lover. So, there's really no wonder why I just love his work.

Dancers amoung us

Dancers amoung us

Jordan Matter began in the spring of 2009 a collection of NYC dance photographs. There were no trampolines or other devices used for these images, just thousands of hours of training!

The feeling of freedom that comes out of thoses images is impressing !

Olivier Roller

Olivier Roller

Each summer, Olivier Roller takes photos of Juliette. They spend their summer in the same house. So, at the end of the stay, when everyone is hurried by the departure, they become isolated, and he does her portrait. And each year, he and us see her become a woman. He imagines the end of this story when he will photography her with her daughter aged eleven.

The serie about Juliette is my favorite of Olivier's work, but I would recommend you to check out his entire website !

Ryan McGinley

Ryan McGinley

I find Ryan McGinley work complety amazing. I'm not the inly one to think so since he was at the age of 24, the youngest artist to have a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art. His pictures are full of joy, colors and freedom.

Josef Hoflehner

Josef Hoflehner

You would think that taking only black & white square shots is too much constraints. Well, certainly not for Josef Hoflehner ! This post contains a bit more pictures than usual because it was too hard for me to select my favorites one.

Lara Alegre

Lara Alegre

Lara Alegre loves photography, and you can really tell just by looking at her picture. They all are telling a story about a person, or a trip. They are humans.

Oscar

Oscar

Taking a look at Oscar's photos is like taking a walk with him and his girlfriend. In one hour, I have been with them in Honk-Hong, Austria, Czech Republic...

Ren Rox

Ren Rox

Ren Rox uses mainly 35mm films. I chose to show off only a tiny part of her work : double exposure shots; but please look up her website : there rest of her work is also amazing !

Rune Guneriussen

Rune Guneriussen

Rune Guneriussen sure knows how to take the most of great landscapes of Norway ! His installations are mysterious, but also full of poetry and humor !

Native Americans

Native Americans

Those pictures were taken by William Pennington and Lisle Updike in Colorado into the 1910s ... ! 1910s ! The quality is so amazing that I almost threw my digital camera into the garbage (almost).

Paris under the rain

Paris under the rain

lI vaut mieux qu'il pleuve aujourd'hui, plutôt qu'un jour où il fait beau.

Also don't miss Christophe Jacrot photos of Honk-hong under the rain.

Lucem

Lucem

I didn't found out very much about Lucem except that she is a 20sh something girl from Moscow.

100 kisses in Paris

100 kisses in Paris

Yang Ya-ching is not the average 27 years old Taiwanese girl. She's currently studying music in Paris and has the crazy project to kiss 100 men in Paris. I'm not quite sure if she's finished as I don't understand her blog but I find the pictures full of cuteness. On a different note, she plays quite well the piano.

Cuba Gallery

Cuba Gallery

People behind the Cuba Gallery are actually from New Zeland. I don't know much about them but I like how they're not afraid to post-process their images.

Bruno Dayan

Bruno Dayan

Born in London, Bruno Dayan has lived in France, Canada and Japan. I wonder where he got all the inspiration for those mises-en-scènes.

Temple

Temple

What could be best than some peaceful and zen pictures before starting a new year ?

Those were taken in temple sanctuary in Kyoto. Please visit the original website where you'll find high resolution photos.

Natalia Vodianova by Paolo Roversi

If you ask me, this is my favorite photography ever. I just can't stop looking at it/her.

Manhattanhenge

Manhattanhenge, also known as Manhattan Solstice is when the sunset in Manhattan is perfectly aligned with the east-west streets in this borough's grid. It happens twice a year, and I find it quite pretty. Hope I will have the chance to observe the phenomenon one day !

Dalla

Dalla

Dalla, is a young woman (I think as I don't speak islandic) from Iceland. She has a great eye, and lives in a beautiful place. That's the recipe for unique photos full of softness and poetry.

Stephan Vanfleteren

Stephan Vanfleteren

Stephan Vanfleteren mostly does portraits, always in black and white. A lot of his picture were taken in his home country: Belgium. If I had two words to describe his work, I would say strong and beautiful.

L.A. Perspective

L.A. Perspective

Monsieur Lam went to Los Angeles, and saw some kind of a pattern where he went.

Emilie

Emilie

Emilie's work is full of nostalgia and magic which goes pretty well with the faded tints of polaroids.

Sexties

Sexties

I'm very fond of portraits. Weirdly, I prefer women portraits, but when I came across Sexties's men portraits I must say I find them pretty food. So here are some :

Népal rural

Népal rural

Don't you just want to take a plane and fly to Nepal seeing these photos ?
Found on Etienne's thread from the famous community Café Salé.

Twilight Zone

Twilight Zone

SATO Shintaro wanders the streets of Tokyo days and night to find fire escape and shoot the city. His favorite time of the day is when artificial light and natural light are mixed.

Kowloon Walled City

Kowloon Walled City

The Kowloon Walled City was located just outside Hong Kong, China during British rule. A former watchpost to protect the area against pirates, it was occupied by Japan during World War II and subsequently taken over by squatters after Japan’s surrender. Neither Britain nor China wanted responsibility for it, so it became its own lawless city.

Its population flourished for decades, with residents building labyrinthine corridors above the street level, which was clogged with trash. The buildings grew so tall that sunlight couldn’t reach the bottom levels and the entire city had to be illuminated with fluorescent lights. It was a place where brothels, casinos, opium dens, cocaine parlors, food courts serving dog meat and secret factories ran unmolested by authorities. It was finally torn down in 1993 after a mutual decision was made by British and Chinese authorities, who had finally grown wary of the unsanitary, anarchic city and its out-of-control population.

Lac d'Annecy
